Brown parred the 495-yard par 5 hole. “I think our league has been consistent over the last 10 years and usually has 40 to 50 players out during the week. We had a decrease in attendance, but we recently added over 20 new members which is exciting to see,” Levin said.

Levin went on to say the Wednesday league is usually a popular day with the members at OCC and the Men’s Golf Association  is a very welcoming golf club, leading to his next comment that he would love to see more members join and be active in the league.

“During the summer people leave to go to their summer homes, so we don’t always have the highest attendance, but we would always welcome more people,” Levin said.
